“Fear not! I will strengthen you!” Isaiah 41:10
Blessed promise, “I will strengthen you!” Who gives the promise? Jehovah Jesus! To whom is it given?
Powerless believer, it is given to you! To you, it is said, “Fear not!” You have a war to wage and a race to run; an enemy to watch and a victory to gain. Your own strength is nothing. Even an angel’s strength would not suffice you. You must be clothed with power from Heaven. You must be armed with God. I would not underrate your own weakness, and I cannot overrate the divine strength at your command.
Are you a child in the Christian experience, in faith, in grace, and in power? Fear not! Out of the mouths of babes has God ordained strength, that you, my fellow sinner, may still the enemy. (Psalm 8:2)
You are weak in yourself–but strong in Christ!
This must be your motto, and your consolation. You have no strength of your own. Look not for it. Your own deceitful heart is too much for you–you cannot master it. How, then, could you fight with Satan and prevail? How often have your lusts entangled you? And your evil tempers humbled you?
You have looked for power, and behold leanness! You have looked for strength, and there was none! Have you prayed to God–yes, thrice besought Him–to take your weakness from you? Ask it not. His grace is sufficient for you. His strength is made perfect in your weakness. Glory, then, in your infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon you. (2 Corinthians 12:8, 9)
Strength in the Lord
Fear not! Surely in the Lord, you have righteousness and strength. God shall strengthen you with might by His Spirit in the inner man. He will be the strength of your heart, and your portion forever. (Isaiah 45:24; Ephesians 3:16; Psalm 73:26)
Only be persuaded of your own weakness. When you are weak, then are you strong. Then are you able to do all things through Christ who strengthens you. Fellow sinner, fear not! (2 Corinthians 12:10; Philippians 4:13)
“Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are Mine! When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. And when you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior!” Isaiah 43:1-3
